There are two computer labs in our school district. Both are used for formal instruction given by a technology teacher. Students attend technology class on a five day cycle for approximately fifty minutes. The skills taught are aligned with the Massachusetts Technology Frameworks and include, but are not limited to: Scratch Programming, typing skills, and Google Workspace. This instruction prepares students to work more independently within the regular classroom.
Kindergarten classrooms have several iPads to give students access to the latest education tools.
Grades 1 through 6 have been assigned Chromebook carts that are used to provide machines for the entire class while in the classroom. These Chromebooks are used to access internet-based curriculum software and to introduce Google Drive for project collaboration.
